Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
This open file provides an inventory of historical borrow pit locations and subsequent pond development formed between 1961 and 2005 along the highway corridor between Behchoko and Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. The inventory and database were prepared to better understand potential relationships between highway performance and past terrain disturbance that could affect permafrost and geotechnical properties of sediments. The accompanying shapefile format data can be used in a GIS to place areas of borrow pits and recent ponds onto digital maps for referencing. In addition, files provided in KML format can also be used to locate these areas in Google Earth®. The primary purpose of this inventory is to approximate the location and size of historical borrow pits and pond development in relation to highway infrastructure, as a basis for present and future reference to highway performance in this permafrost-affected terrain.
